Today we've bumped our monthly series a up few days early, and it's super sized!  Welcome to My *15* Favorites today!  Pam from Simple Details, Lisa from Shine Your Light, Kris from Driven by Decor and I are all so excited to share our holiday wish lists with you today.  We had so many good things we couldn't stop at just 5!

We're also so happy to welcome Courtney from A Thoughtful Place as our guest host today.  Courtney can do it all... she's the perfect hostess, does gorgeous fashion posts as well as home, and she and her family have recently moved into a new-to-them home where they made quick work of updating it beautifully to suit their family.  Her "Home Sweet Home" tree that she decorated this year was so creative, and I thought this was such a smart idea for busy on the go families, too!  I was privileged to meet Courtney in person a few years ago and she's even sweeter in real life than she seems on her blog.  Be sure to stop buy and get to know her today!

The wish list that I'm sharing with you today is a combination of things I have and love and think you would enjoy too, along with some things that really are on my own personal wish list!  It was hard for me to not fill up the whole list with just home items, but I narrowed my choices down to 5 for the home, 5 personal (for women), and 5 miscellaneous/kids.

I have the largest one on my Christmas list, but I just *might* have already placed an order for the other two sizes... they would look so cute grouped together on the kitchen counter.
Instant Pot Pressure Cooker- Everything old is new again, right??  ;)  A perfectly cooked dinner in a matter of minutes (and currently at an awesome price!)?  Yes please!
(Edited:  The price changed since I published this, but keep an eye out for another sale!  Or, this one is more reasonable with just one less feature.)
Agate Slice Napkin Rings- A bit of a splurge, but oh, so pretty!
Kate Spade Tumbler-  add a vinyl monogram for extra cuteness!
Marble Tray - ROUND or RECTANGLE-  I've got my eye on a marble tray to use on some of my darker wood surfaces, it would stand out so nicely! 

Monogrammed Patterned Bag (this one shown)-  I LOVE my Barrington tote bag and load it up with just about everything imaginable.  While I use it for a purse as well as tote, I'd like to have one this size too that's slightly smaller and has a zipper closure.  They are available in just about every color combo and pattern imaginable, plus a monogram.  Yay!
Personalized Leather Tassel Key Fob- No explanation needed... bet you can't guess what color I'd get!
Kate Spade Watch- I've had my eye on this watch for a long time, and this is the best price I've seen.  Maybe Santa will read my post today.  :)  I do have a nice Michael Kors watch, but it tends to be a bit heavy and this Kate Spade is nice and slim.
Jogger-style PJ Pants- Hands down, these are my favorite pajama pants.  They're light weight so not too hot, and SUPER soft.  
Acrylic Monogram Necklace- The large size with gold chain in tortoise shell would be my personal choice, but there are tons of color and size options available.  

Ticket to Ride-  I meant to get this game last year but never did, but it will be under our tree for sure this year!  I've seen so many friends recommend it, and I think it will be a good family game option.  We love Settlers of Catan which is in the same family of games, so it should be a winner!
Jesus Storybook Bible- Even though my kids are older, I recently purchased this book and it's so sweet.  I'm still going to read through it with them, but it would be a treasure for young preschoolers and children.  The illustrations are vivid and kid friendly and the "story" is very readable and easy to understand.  
FlashFlight LED Flying Disc-  This was on my gift guide last year, but I couldn't help include it again.  One of our all time favorite outdoor toys!
Cordless Glue Gun- When my friend and I were making all of the snowmen a few weeks ago, she had one of these and I thought "Why don't I have one of those?"  The reviews are a little mixed, but she loves hers and the price is good enough that it's worth trying.  One thing she did mention is that the gun had to be clicked into the base for it to be "ON", so it's technically "OFF" when you release it to use it, but it stays heated long enough that that hasn't been an issue for her- just click it back into the base each time you put it down.  
Hammock- On my husband's wish list (and I have a feeling the whole family will enjoy it!).

What's at the top of your wish list this year?  Be sure to head over to Simple Details, Shine Your LightDriven by Decor, and A Thoughtful Place to check out their holiday gift picks, too!

  1. I love that pretty monogram necklace and the tassel key fob in all those fun colors! I've never used a pressure cooker, you'll have to fill me in if I'm missing out on something I need to know! :) Fun lists, my friend!

  2. Loving so many of these finds! I almost put that pressure cooker on my list too - my sister and her family were visiting for Thanksgiving and had recently bought that exact one and are obsessed with it!!

  3. Some really nice things on here, thanks. I bought my sister the Instant Pot for Christmas, she has already opened it, she is ready to use it. I have one that was given to me recently, these are so much better than the stove top ones and so quiet. I love that it is a slow cooker as well, so many options on this. I love mine!

  4. Love the Jesus storybook as well. I have a great niece and great nephew who are 6 and 7, I think this would be a great book for them to share. Many thanks.

  5. Ticket to Ride is my favorite game EVER. We have SO much fun playing it.
